We visited Cardrona for a skiing holiday with friends & had a wonderful time. I'm a novice skier & had lots of opportunities to ski on green slopes.

Loved Cardrona, it had an awesome vibe to it. Snow was world-class, so good the Swiss Ski team were there! Cannot recommend the ski field enough...
Favourite ski resort in the region. Have visited yearly with my family for many years and it's great to see on going improvements. Great runs!
